Luxury Listings, Part 5
The real estate market is sizzling in South Florida, with multimillion-dollar homes like this one leading the way
Note: This is the fifth in a series of nine luxury residential properties featured in the April issue of Lifestyle.
Address: 7709 Atlantic Way, Miami Beach
By the numbers: 6,758 square feet under air; 6 bedrooms, 5 full baths, 1 half bath
Highlights: One of only 24 homes in exclusive Altos Del Mar, Miami Beach’s only private oceanfront residential community, this detail-rich, four-year passion project by South African brothers Ivan Kadey (designer) and Moss Kadey (businessman) elevates the resort-style experience—literally, given that it’s built 18 feet above sea level. The open floor plan celebrates beachfront living in every imaginable way—the oversized dining room and living room overlook the Atlantic Ocean; retractable Victrocsa “invisible wall” glass windows from Switzerland create seamless indoor/outdoor ambience; and ceiling skylights are designed to guide homeowners toward the ocean. Details throughout speak to the form-meets-function vibe that permeates the residence, including custom Porro closets, Boffi kitchen and bathroom, surround-sound home theater, an outdoor deck made of imported African padauk, a 60-foot-long lap pool, a rooftop deck with 360-degree views, and an embedded steel hot tub.
The price: $25.5 million
